    I don't watch TV, almost never. But I espied a show on Milwaukee PBS right now explaining what this instrument is, how it differs from the concertina, and everything else you could want to know about accordions.

    It seems to be a more or less "standard" button accordion. But you already have found this out
    I just checked my accordion literature but only found overviews of the names of the buttons on the chromatic version of the button accordion, so that won't help you. The wikipedia article seems to be pretty concise, though.

    I always had to buy my accordions, so congratulations to this nice gift

    's OK. I tried and failed too. I'm shocked that they're wrong; I'm very careful about camera orientation but clearly my camera's orientating sensor is packing up.

    I tried to rotate this for you, but failed. Sorry.

    Wikipedia has an article on exactly what this instrument is: a Diatonic Button Accordion. I'd provide a link but the forum software won't let me today.

    According to that, this instrument certainly could be Bb. Of course that doesn't mean it's restricted to playing in Bb. In any case, there are other B​​​​​​b instruments. Many times I had to transpose on the fly to play along with someone who could only play B​​​​​​b​​​​​​​.

    From the title 'accordion' I was dubious of a Bb instrument. However, in concertina-land, there is indeed such a thing.
    The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know.

    Almost all accordions have steel reeds.
